I didn't make any theory. All I did was state the findings, nothing else. You did say we need more laws. More gun control is more laws.

It can be amended, but it's a massive process and nothing can be done until that happens.

So what, you´re just gonna stick to the original plan because it´s too much trouble to make a change? Yes, gun control is more laws, but not just more laws. They will have to specify what guns are illegal and to whom they are and aren´t allowed to be sold. You know, I´m really tired of this. Just go on and live your American dream or whatever, while the people with brains try to make your life even better.

What is typical? Referencing the literal law of the land as the law of the land? The founders of this country put the Bill of Rights in place as a higher authority than any that exists. It's not a list of powers granted to the Government, it's a list of rights the Government can't take away from us. It always matters.

Wow, you really stick to your point. I respect that, though I will always disagree with you. What´s typical is that when you run out of arguments, you just start quoting the constitution. I have not yet heard any good argument against more gun control. All I´ve heard is that you are afraid of the invasion of your rights and that you desperately hang onto the rights, just because they are written down. Haha, did you know that in some US states **** is illegal? Or that in Louisiana, it is illegal to make a false promise?
Stop saying the government is stealing from you, because it is not true and stop being so narrow-minded. It´s not making you look very intelligent.

It's not a conclusion I had to observe anything to come to. It's simply a fact that 99% of mass-shootings occur in gun-free zones. This is undeniable truth. Considering there are places outside of these zones where people can buy guns, why do they exist?

I like how your argument is "laws aren't working, so we need more."

That´s not what I said. I said that YOU are drawing a conclusion BASED on those findings. Do you see the difference? You´re using those statistics to reinforce your own theory, without scientifically testing it or even thinking about other possibilities.
Also, I did not say you need more laws. I´m saying that you only seem to value the consitution because it reinforces your opinion (see what I did there?). And as you very well know, laws and consitutions can be amended.

That's certainly not the only argument I have. It's the only one I need, but it's very far from the only one I have. They wouldn't be within their rights, it would be a direct violation of the constitution. We are obligated to defend against all enemies, foreign and domestic. People attempting to disarm us are no different than a domestic terrorist, and will be treated as such. You're the ignorant one here, believe it or not.

Hahaha, oh this is so typical. So some people wrote down a constitution ages ago and it´s very valuable. But wait, there´s more, its value is only considered when people need it to get what they want :D you know what, I´ll let you stay in your bubble. I´ll tell you what, I´m Dutch and a woman. I probably stay in the kitchen all day, wearing wooden shoes and smoking weed!

That, sir, is a perfect example of observer bias. You know, drawing conclusions over data based on your previous opinion and expectations rather than a scientific analysis? You see, if there had been more gun control, a lot of lunatics wouldn´t have been able to get a gun. Also, those gun free zones should apparently have been much more secured. Which is logical, regarding the fact that outside those zones lunatics ARE allowed to buy guns.

If politicians weren't shitting all over the second amendment, we'd be armed at least on par with the police. No police-issue ballistic vest is going to stand up to a round from my rifle. Who are you to dictate what normal people would and would-not do? Many people would rather die than watch their country go to shit. That's what would happen if the Government tried to confiscate our firearms; the country would go to shit.

Oh would you stop whining about the second amendment? I know it´s the only argument you have, but still. Stop it. I am in no place to say what is normal, but I am allowed to firmly express my opinion. So are you. And still, what the hell? You would try to kill people if they would within their right to confiscate your gun tried to do their job? I´d say, the reason your country might go to shit, is because of the ignorance of many of its people.

"Give everyone a year to collect and turn in their weapons" Hahahahaha, are you serious? Do you realize how bad of an idea this is? What's going to happen if we don't turn our guns in, are they going to come confiscate them? No, because they're going to get **** shot. We gun owners take our guns very seriously.

Right. But the police have guns, too. And bulletproof vests. And any normal person would give up his **** gun rather than murder someone.

I never liked saying that more guns would be the solution, but I don't see less guns helping. I mean sure, if there were a way to go back in time and prevent guns from ever being created, then let's do that. But we can't. Guns exist and they're not just going to magically disappear. Even if the government were to ban them, people would figure out how to make them on their own (just like you can do with bombs).

A lot of people say, "but we just want it harder for mentally unstable and felons to get them." There's a problems with that: What would the government define as mentally unstable? Who's to say the government wouldn't try to say "due to the aspect that allergies pisses people off to the point they would kill another man, anybody with seasonal allergies will not be allowed to possess firearms"? If you don't think the government would do such a thing, you are far too trusting. As far as felons go, what about those who were falsely convicted of their crimes or didn't even commit a violent crime at all?

The point is that everybody cries to the government to fix all of our problems when the majority of the time the government just makes it worse.

You have got to be kidding me. I was being sarcastic, giving kids guns is not going to just teach them about the dangers. They´ll probably shoot each other when they get into an argument.
And about your ´point´ on mentally unstable people: you´re not really serious about that one, right? Have you ever heard about science? Psychological research? No, you cannot predict for every person if they might use a weapon in a bad way. Which is exactly why there has to be more gun control! Give everyone a year to collect and turn in their weapons to the government. Then don´t give anyone who isn´t part of law inforcement a gun license.

I´ll try and explain it with a metaphor: if the wate rpipes break and flood your basement, do you raise the ceiling or find a way to get rid of the water?

And btw, I´m NOT saying that one should have complete trust in the government and I completely agree that Obama´s stunt with the drones was very wrong and unethical. But I think he´s your best chance, since all the Republican candidates are either hypocritical liers or just plain stupid.

Oh yeah, that´s just great. We should give the teachers guns, too, to protect the children in case some lunatic with a gun comes in. And while we´re at it, give all the children guns, too, so that they can protect themselves from bullies. You know what, let´s just give every single person the US a gun!

You shouldn´t just give guns to responsible citizens, you should stop giving guns to irresponsible people. Guns should be in the hands of the police, to be used only in case of emergency. Don´t you see? It´s all about money with the gun lobbyists. They´re rich, yet undereducated, irresponsible and selfish. Do not let their pointless yelling convince you.

Of course. And I dare everyone who disapproves to give me one good reason for that.

All flags are unique. OP is just saying that Americans shouldn't be so proud of the colours of their flag, since that colour combination has been used by many other countries as well.
